PHS senior accepted into Coast Guard and Merchant Marine Academies
Posted by Angela Denning | Jan 29, 2015
Ben Zarlengo is a senior at Petersburg High School.
Petersburg high school senior, Ben Zarlengo, has been accepted into the U.S. Coast Academy and the Merchant Marine Academy. This week, he found out that Congressman Don Young and U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski nominated him for the merchant marine program.
Zarlengo doesn’t know which one he will choose. He has at least another month to decide but as he tells Angela Denning, his future is bright either way.
Both academies are on the East Coast. The U.S. Coast Guard Academy is in Connecticut and the Merchant Marine Academy is in New York.
March 31 is the deadline to make a donation to a nonprofit through your Permanent Fund Dividend. Thank You for supporting Petersburg nonprofits!!
